I have 3 years of financial analysis experience in the DoD and manufacturing environment. My specialties include financial analysis, budget creation from the ground up, maintaining project forecasts, financial analysis, ad-hoc financial analysis requests, and financial reporting. Another strong suit I have is the ability to convey complex information to in the correct format based on the audience. I hold an MBA from an AACSB accredited school in which I graduated with a 3.8 GPA. My undergrad was in Business Economics with a minor in Finance. I am looking to prove myself on here and would love the opportunity to show my abilities to a given project. A usual day for me would include the creation of budgets from the ground up as every project I am a part of is unique. I would also be the point of contact for anything financial relating to project. This would mean the daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly tracking of financial data for a project to ensure maximum profitability. In terms of overall dollar figures I will typically be the financial analyst for projects ranging in price and scale from $10K for a month to $25M that could span several years. Another strong point I have is the ability to track programs that could change in its overall scope and complexity. I am also in charge of providing ad-hoc data through the use of tools such as Oracle's Hyperion or Business Objects reporting ERP platform.
Hi, My name is Dan. Over the past eleven years I have been involved in various capacities in the research, establishment and operation of a number of businesses, predominantly within the financial planning, telecommunications, wholesale and retail sectors. Business is my passion. From the very initial contemplation of a potential venture, to nurturing and developing the idea to a stage where research can be done regarding its feasibility, to taking the idea to market for trial, and then operating and optimising its potential, the business process enthrals me. I believe that I have gained a skill set, which has enabled me to make informed entrepreneurial decisions based on effective research and the ability to think and analyse information objectively and critically. Having had sales and marketing experience from the 'ground up' with a range of products from $1 fishing floats through to $500k software packages has enabled me to identify target markets for products and services, develop and identify purchasing imperatives, and establish effective price points, which are both realistic and profitable. Working with business partners, staff, managers, clients of all varying cultures, personalities, experience and expertise has taught me how to operate effectively both independently and within team environments, including task management and prioritisation, time management, opportunity and risk analysis, and conflict management and resolution. Managing international, cultural and lingual differences has become part of my business routine when organising products for shipment from various companies. In a nutshell, I have moved away from full-time employment in pursuit of a more freelance role helping others in their businesses. I would class myself as a business all-rounder in terms of my experience. Please feel free to contact me for a further discussion if I can be of assistance.
